Next to the oil filter. At least on my Xj's i6 it is.

Not to hijack your thread but,Now that that is answered what is the idle oil pressure supposed to be in psi? what about under load? Please answer, just rebuilt inline 6 and think oil pressure
might be low, its at 40 when idling, and around 58-59 when giving it good gas. Is that normal?

Yes. Mine varies from 20 -60. You even don't have to worry when it's 5 at idle and 20 at 3000 rpm. sometimes the sensors are not that accurate, sometimes with thicker oil the pressure is a bit higher than with thinner oil. No problem. An i6 can do fine with some minor wear.

Start worrying when the pressure is only 5 at 3000 rpm and zero at idle, even after replacing the sensor. You're facing a rebuild then (worn bearings and rods), but I assume you would also have other issues at that time.

Rule of thumb, even in racing circles, is 10 psi for every 1000 rpm of engine speed. More is better to an extent, less is not good at all. Yours is outstanding, don't worry about it.

I checked the area around the oil filter. Nothing to be found there. So, I am still looking for the oil pressure sending unit. Anyone else have a suggestion as to where to look next?

Right from the oilfilter you see the silver thing. That's the oil pressure sending unit. It's on the oilfilter stud.

Thanks for the photo, but my engine doesn't have anything around the oil filter. It doesn't even have a conventional distributor - itís electronic.

Try to make some pics from different sides and angles. The thing must be somewhere.
